Bio

A. Swayze & the Ghosts are a punk/garage outfit from Hobart Tasmania with a live show that is at all times raw, energetic and enigmatic. In the past 12 months they’ve performed at Falls Festival, MONA Faux Mo, A Festival Called Panama, Boogie Festival and By The Meadow as well as guest spots for The Living End and Total Control, Batpiss and The Stems. A. Swayze & the Ghosts released a 10+ minute belter of a début single in 2016 titled Reciprocation, followed up with 'Smooth Sailing' and their Debut EP in late 2017, helping to spread their music to an even larger listenership.

I don't know if it's just the time I'm listening to this, as Spring takes hold, but it makes me feel the way I did first time I heard Modest Mouse: Bang The Dashboard Alive
